Reading Response 1

Writing is something I have always struggled with in school. I always have had a hard time putting my thoughts on paper. I took AP Lang and AP Literature in high school so, I have always been use to “fluffing up” my papers to get them to their appropriate word count. I think media writing will be refreshing by just getting the facts down, it’ll be a change of pace getting straight to the point.

Knight talks about writing directly to the audience. I agree with him. I think knowing your audience is the most important thing you can do when writing. It gives the writing a more personal feel, making the reader feel like they’re talking to a friend. Overall I agree with a lot of the points made by Knight, his writing is just light enough for it not to be boring. It will make it easy to compare his strategies with my writing and hopefully changing my writing for the better.
